  • chris pochari and TeoerryNug like this

Well after fifteen and a half years they finally went from saying "the pilot shortage is coming", to "the pilot shortage is here!"  Yep, 2018, year of the pilot shortage!

not related to Robinson helis but can you put floats on a seahawk??? :blink: I've always wondered what happens when the engine quits on a jayhawk/seahawk? Do they float like the sea king or dolphin?

Our Sea Hawks (H and F models) had floats.  The Sea King had a boat hull (and floats). . . big difference.

Drive train failure. Still wondering if the floats were manually triggered or a result of the accident. Somebody is going to need a new fence. Glad all are (mostly) ok.

Wow, into an urban area and the helicopter still looks that good.  That sounds like a job well done to me.
